Connecting to an HRIS provider allows you to easily manage the members of your Assembly. You can add employees automatically or manually to your Assembly from your HRIS, depending on how you configure your settings.

Who can use this feature?

  • Slack, G Suite, and Office 365 integrations are available for all plan types. All other HRIS integrations require a Standard or Premium plan.

What to expect

  • Only one HRIS can be connected at one time.
